The Editorial Board will consider a wide range of Asia-related items for publication, including academic papers, research reports and reviews. All academic items are initially screened for quality, content and relevance by a member of the Editorial team and, if deemed suitable, will then undergo a double-blindfold review process.
The NZJAS has no particular house-style, but all papers are expected to be appropriately annotated and referenced. The substantive text of all items published will be in English but we encourage authors to include Asian scripts where appropriate (such as with names).
Papers submitted to the NZJAS should be original contributions and must not be under consideration by any other publisher; authors must attest to this at the time of submission. It is also the author’s responsibility to disclose any potential conflict of interest regarding the submitted manuscript.
Please check our Editorial Process for more detailed information on authors' responsibilities and the peer review process.
The NZJAS is a non-profit publication and it does not charge any author fee.
The NZJAS also invites expression of interests for guest editing of special issues.
The Guest Editor(s) will submit a proposal that should include the title of the Special Issue, a brief CV of the proposed Guest Editor(s), a brief description of the Special Issue’s topic and significance. If available, titles and draft abstracts of the proposed papers, brief details of contributors and any draft papers that may be available can also be included.
Once the special issue is accepted and the publication schedule is agreed, the Guest Editor(s) will be mainly responsible for handling the submitted papers and managing the peer-review process. The NZJAS Editors will provide support, if requested.
